It’s a Pencil WIP

I’ve taken to pencil and all things graphite lately. This’ll make it to the finish line relatively soon I hope •

The Dog Boy Awaiting of Stripe Ed

Wondering about how to hide takes time away from smelling the good stuff, and it could be what it appears to the one who thinks, so time waits for someone •

The flowers rustled; the traffic sorta bustled; throughout it all, the flute played true •

天皇映える (Tennō Glow)


(click the image for video)

Satoko and I were in Toritsu Daigaku, and the Emperor of Japan, aka, 天皇 (Tennou or, Tennō), and his wife, Michiko, just happened to be driven through. It’s sort of a big deal for the obvious reason—he’s the Emperor of Japan, but also because this is the last month he will be the Emperor in this 平成時代 (Heisei jidai/period). He’s stepping down to make way for the next in line—his son, and the new period, 令和時代 (Reiwa jidai/period). This is unusual, as the Emperor usually will hold his position until death, but Akihito (his given name) may be wiser than his predecessors in that he’s willing to live out his final years as a common mortal. I hold him in higher regard simply for wanting a relaxing life. It was cool to be able to see him and Michiko •
